I haven't gotten a Wii game since SSBB. I really want to play the Wii once in a while, but what's the use if you don't have any games for it, right? So, out of the following which one should I get? Or if you have other opinions, plez tell!
Boom Blox- A party game featuring block puzzles. It acts like a giant physic engine, and really pushes the Wii in that department. I don't really have many people to play with, so one player will have to do. It's plays like those games at the boardwalk where you through a baseball at 3 stacked blocks and try to take them down in one throw. Players must throw items as efficiently as possible to knock down the most structures.
Opoona- I heard a lot of people say this game was terrible, but people have their own opinions. It's a simple Japanese RPG for younger gamers lacking anything the depth, custimization, and, well, "RPG meterial" people would expect of an RPG. It looks cute, and the graphics... well, they pass since it's a Wii game. It's just... battles seem too easy, and it lacks the "RPGiness" of most RPG games.
Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors- I rented this from Gamefly, and it was pretty good. It has the humor, monsters, and storyline you'd expect from a Dragon Quest game minus the gameplay. Yeah, the game doesn't consist of the turn-based party RPG of the last couple DQ games. You take your Remote, and slash at on-screen enemies until they fall. You cannot form a party to fight along side with, instead other characters will aid you now and then by healing of casting spells. It was still a joy to play though.
Or should I just hang on to my cash for something better latter?
DEVIL MAY CRY: THE ANIMATED SERIES
It has everything you expect a Devil May Cry spinoff to have: crazy stylish fights featuring Dante, Trish, Lady, and hundreds of terrifying demons straight from hell in this one helluva bloody anime. The storyline shows fans what Dante and others have been up to in the time between Devil May Cry 3, and Devil May Cry 4. Dante finally opens shop, and boy- the calls never stop! From escorting little girls being chased by blood-thirsty monsters, to having a motorcycle race with the demon king of the highway- there is a ton off stuff every fan will enjoy! The biggest surprise in the first volume is the number of special features guarenteed to keep any fan busy. The only downfall is how short it is, and how it may leave fans wanting more.
ADV Films, TV MA, episodes 1-4

A bunch of my friends around the net have been making little quize-things up, so I decided to do the same.
This is a question that rarely comes up- usually the question is "who are your favorite Brawl characters.". So here are my top 5 favorite Brawl stages and 3 I cannot stand.
Number 5- Castle Siege: I like how the environment is always changing, and how different Fire Emblem games make some kind of appearance in the stage at some point, like the Dark Knight in the background of the 1st stage change.
Number 4- Smashville: I never thought Animal Crossing would make an apperance in a SSB game!
Number 3- Green Hill Zone: Awsome music and the "half-pipe" are great for Sonic's spin dash/ Squirtle's rapid spin.
Number 2- Shadow Moses Island: It's from my all time favorite game series, so what's not to love?
Number 1- New Pork City: It's HUGE! Biggest level in the game, and has the funniest name too! Plus the Chimera can finish off the enemy in a single hit (most of the time) so you don't have to worry is you know how to use it.
MY MOST HATED LEVELS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rumble Falls- Stop moving already! I never made it to the top because either my opponent died, or I did.
Hanenbow- I hate this level. It's so hard to fight on.
75m- Too many hazards! Ahhhhh!
I just decided to get my top 20 favorite anime over with, so here are my final top 5 favorite anime of all time.

What the heck is the deal with Nintendo lately? It's Nintendo's system for cryin out loud, so start making some games already! I mean, out of the 365+ games, only like, 9 of them are actually by Nintendo. The Wii may turn out to be like the GameCube: no good games are going to be released for a while, and everyone is going to loss interest. Right now the XBox 360 is totally catching up to the system. Remember when it first came out, and everybody rushed to get one? Well, the whole "Sorry we don't have any in" deal died. Not as many people want them anymore. The only games that are really gret on a Nintendo system are those made by Nintendo. Sure, some games come out by someone else and are great, but it's really rare. I don't want to see the Wii end up like the GameCube at all, so start getting some great games out Nintendo. I still expect great things from Nintendo, but they gotta start doing something. At least a new StarFox or Pokemon game or something. Come on, I don't want to be playing Twilight Princess, Mario Kart, and SSBB on the Wii forever. I mean, the only game I still play on my GameCube is is Animal Crossing.
